Frank J. Beafore / WS8B – Chairperson
Once again, it gives me great pleasure to announce the opening of the 2017 Hamvention Awards nomination process. As in the past, this prestigious program will bestow awards in the following categories: Technical Achievement, Special Achievement and Amateur of the Year. Hamvention will also be recognizing the Club of the Year.
The Hamvention Awards event has been held since 1955. Over these years many amateurs have been honored for their dedication and selfless contributions to our avocation and to mankind.
The Technical Achievement Award will be given to a selected amateur radio operator who has achieved technical excellence in the world of amateur radio. Examples are inventions, processes, discoveries, experiments and other technical accomplishments or any other outstanding technical achievement that contributed to amateur radio.
The Special Achievement Award will be given to a deserving amateur that made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of the radio art and or science. This award is usually given to a respected amateur who spearheaded a single significant project.
The Amateur of the Year Award is given to a ham that has made a long-term commitment to the advancement to amateur radio. This individual will have a history of ham radio contributions and has had a dedication to service, professionalism and the advancement of the avocation of amateur radio.
The Club of the Year will be honored for clearly demonstrating their involvement in varied aspects of Amateur Radio for the greater good of their community and/or their nation.
The above awards are given every year and represent the “Academy Award” of the amateur radio world.
